The A/E/C industry is a diverse mix of companies and individuals with an extensive range of needs, priorities and personalities. Few people navigate this field like Jill. Her genuine, honest, down-to-earth demeanor coupled with an unrelenting desire to take care of her clients makes her a valuable asset. She has an uncanny ability to make anyone feel at ease, which is critical to building relationships.

Working with Jill is a real pleasure. She knows the industries, runs a “Swiss watch” of an organization, never wastes time, and provides the forum to get results. McKibbin Consulting has been a great investment for us. I HIGHLY recommend them!

Woody Thrasher, President – The Thrasher Group

I’ve known Jill McKibbin, owner of McKibbin Consulting, for over four years and have been actively part of her CIST groups.  These are the best networking groups that I’ve found in the area that bring people together from the construction industry in one forum to discuss a multitude of projects that any one person finds as solid economic information to help further his/her business.  Each person within the group is also welcoming and provides attentiveness to introductions for other group members.

Jill McKibbin has a rare talent for networking. Her energy and social ability allow her to make connections and put people together in win-win situations that others could easily overlook. I enjoy watching her get a charge out of putting people and firms together. Plus she has the tenacity to follow up and make sure that the connection was made. We should all be as enthused doing what we love to do.

Jill is the go to person for linking people and business together.  If you have never worked with her it is just amazing how she never stops thinking of how to network and partner people together. She’s a person you want on your side helping you day in and day out. Although she seems to work nonstop she’s a very approachable down to earth people person as well. I would recommend her to anyone looking to expand your networking capabilities.

W. Blaine Forkner, P.E., LEED AP BD+C, Principal, Forkner Engineering LLC

I have worked with Jill McKibbin for three years, and would not do without her services. As a small company, we do not have the resources to connect with the multitude of prospects that Jill provides. She accelerates our ability to reach out to many kinds of prospects (whether Architect, Engineer, Real Estate Developer, or Contractor).

Jill has an amazing talent for making that first contact with a new prospect and catching their interest. She has the tenacity needed to get her clients in the door and market their strong points. People listen to Jill because she is down-to-earth and approachable. She creates the bridge for the client to have an opportunity at a level of success they may not otherwise have. I would recommend Jill to anyone who is in need of a skilled Business Development Consultant who is hands-on.

Jill is incredibly savvy, and she has opened many doors for Palone & Associates. We plan to continue to use her services to help grow and diversify our client base.
